Critical Mention

Critical Mention is great for schools/businesses/etc. that want to know when they are in the news. Sometimes a brand's reputation can suffer greatly if you are not aware of an issue that was posted by a competitor or media outlet If you are not in the news a lot, there is no need for this product.

Infegy Atlas

Our experience in Infegy Atlas has been a true wonder, we have been able to analyze all the data and comments from our customers, it has an excellent user interface which is usually quite interactive and very intuitive, it allows you to clean all your data, analyze your data in seconds, the flexibility is undoubtedly excellent, it allows you to be able to store your important data in the cloud and it has more than 35 languages. It is suitable for all scenarios, but I highly recommend it for work teams with a large number of people and for large organizations.

Pros

Critical Mention

  • Critical Mention's customer service is excellent. Any time we've had a challenge finding a clip or anything, they are on top of it and go above and beyond to make sure we have what we are looking for quickly.
  • The ability to create tailored clips of each mention and quickly share them is unparalleled.
  • The reporting feature is fantastic. It makes it very simple to pull detailed reports and share them with interested parties.

  • Sentiment Analysis. Infegy excels at sentiment, and is perhaps (in my opinion, PROBABLY) the leading social listening technology in this capacity. There may be better sentiment engines in existence (Bitext, perhaps) but they do not offer solutions for ingesting the data, especially not at the scale that Infegy does. And they certainly don't scan hundreds of millions of websites for you.
  • Demographic Analysis. These guys have gotten REALLY clever with their demographic capabilities. For example, they build out a sample size of discoverable US zip codes and calculate the median income, family size and education level of your audience based on census data. Brilliant. They also provide gender distribution over time, which is pretty rare - haven't seen it in any of the other 15 tools I've demo'd and used. And age estimates, topic and sentiment by gender, and more.
  • Historical Data. Most tools let you only go back 2-2.5 years. Infegy Atlas lets you go back to 2007... Incredible! They've been collecting, harmonizing and storing the data since then, which not only gives you such broad scope, but also incredible speed.
  • Speed. The data is returned within seconds. It's insane. Even billions of mentions.

Cons

Critical Mention

  • I believe the one frustration I have with searching in general that if the closed captioning is not correct on the broadcast end Critical Mention will miss that data. Which is not a Critical Mention issue and does overcome depending on the search. Also, it would be great if you wanted to capture a complete 30 minutes newscast, it could be done by using the search. The clips need to be about to handle 30-minute programs.
  • One nagging issue when using Critical Mention is that it does not save e-mail addresses when sending a report and this requires a waste of time having to type in e-mails that should be able to be pulled from the customers' contacts.
  • Also, it would be great if you wanted to capture a complete 30 minutes newscast, it could be done by using the search. The clips need to be able to handle 30-minute programs.

Infegy Atlas

  • One feature I would love to see is a more detailed exploration of individual digital influencers. The ability to assess the quality of a source or social media user is critical, and though Atlas does basic rankings for sources - more detail would be helpful. For example, the ability to parse out how many followers are fake/inactive for a Twitter user (like StatusPeople) would be helpful and a ranking system for social media users like Kred or Klout would also be valuable.
  • Better options for exporting results to print formats. Atlas is primarily meant to provide reports that are viewed online (and it does this fantastically-well; even updating them in real-time). However, many of our clients demand static documents (Word, Acrobat and PowerPoint) so it would be very helpful to be able to automatically export reports in a format that is attractive on the printed page.
  • A feature that would be helpful would be the ability to turn off the algorithms that extrapolate how much likely conversation exists about a client and simply measure the actual amount of data captured by Atlas' cache. This is particularly important for monitoring (in, for example, a crisis situation) where our clients are only concerned about the actual, verifiable instances in which they were mentioned.
  • Another aspect of Atlas that could use some improvement has to do with the classification of results by sentiment. The algorithms that measure sentiment aren't perfect and when they mistakenly categorize something as "positive," "negative," or "neutral" - we need to be able to correct them. Related to this feature, it would also be very helpful to be able to exclude results from a query altogether.

I gave this a 5 only because I do not make the decisions to renew. When I used this at my previous company, I also recommended to the decision maker to renew this tool as it was a crucial piece to the overall client objective

Atlas is reasonably-priced and provides excellent value compared to other enterprise tools in the same space. Moreover, we have an excellent relationship with the Infegy team and are consistently impressed with the high quality of support they provide.

It's great for quickly looking up a specific clip, but this platform makes it difficult to select and accurately report on a high volume of clips

Look, Critical Mention follows up on an or phone call immediately or in the AM the following business day. I have called them after hours and get a live person to work through any issues that may have come up. Support seems to be job one with Critical Mention.

Alternatives Considered

Critical Mention

Burrelles is confusing and outdated. Critical Mention works on the side of the account team and understands our needs better. I was able to share hundreds of outlets that I wanted to be included in my online search and Critical Mention added all of them in less than a day I was seeing better results in my searches. The possibilities with Burrelles seem limited while Critical Mention's online monitoring service really lets me craft reports the way I want to

Infegy Atlas

WordStat and Infegy are very similar because both have too many features that help our organization to create a better analysis of our customers and their opinions about our organization, MonkeyLearn is undoubtedly excellent only that its functions are a little more limited, Although my organization currently uses both MonkeyLearn and Infegy because they are similar, and both help with the productivity and management of our analyzes, but without a doubt, the favorite is still Infegy Atlas due to the great capacity of functions and features that it offers to its users by giving it the ease of organizing data, deep searches, and the creation of reports that can be shared in real-time with the entire organization and clients.

Return on Investment

Critical Mention

  • Every week the department I am a part does dozens of searches on Critical Mention. We use it as our primary search engine for all things broadcast.
  • One negative aspect is that we do not know where Critical Mention gets their audience viewing numbers from so we just have to take it as their word.
  • Another negative aspect is that we are limited on the amount of time that one clip can be so we have to share several clips of the same show with our clients.

Infegy Atlas

  • Hugely, intensely positive. We have gotten introductions to very large businesses courtesy of the data provided by Infegy Atlas. CMOs and Digital Directors at huge PR/advertising agencies, finance corps, pharma groups, CPG, and tech/software giants all need, want and SHOULD possess this information at every level of their orgs. But they don't.
  • In our message development projects, social listening is critical, and essentially replaces focus groups for understanding pain points and key value propositions.
  • In our customer profile modeling, social listening provides a unique data set with which we can further develop the clarity and accuracy of our customer profiles for clients.
